Rita Ora: I’d run after Rihanna
Rita Ora has joked she’d spend a music promo with Rihanna “chasing [her] the whole time”.
The British singer-songwriter is emerging as a hot new talent in the music world after being signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. With her edgy attitude and sassy style, the 21-year-old star has been compared to fellow songstress Rihanna.
Rita is flattered by such comments, and has joked about her admiration for the Bajan beauty.
“Doing a feature with her would be so cool. The video would be kinda hot,” she laughed in an interview with MTV News. “I’d be, like, chasing Rihanna the whole time… I’d be like, ‘Come on, man, give me a shot, man! Let me just take you out!’ No, I’m joking; I’m very, very much straight.”
Rita is flattered by the parallels drawn between her and Rihanna. The singer looks up to the international star for inspiration.
“I take it as a compliment, the comparison is a great one,” she said. “It’s not like it’s someone I’m not a fan of, so I’m happy to be compared to someone like that.”
